Dr George was concerned for me as his patient and straight forward with me concerning my condition. Although there seems to be no cure for my condition due to a lot of factors concerning my condition, there is a little hope that therapy may help some. I would not trust anyone but Dr George. He has operated on both my shoulders and I am pleased with those results. I will continue to see Dr George because I know he is concerned for my health. He is great. I would highly recommend him! He cares about his patients!

I went to Dr George for knee pain. He took xrays, came in and said there was no bone on bone, gave me a cortisone shot, said I had a torn ligament and sent me on my way. How he knew that with no MRI I don’t know. Spent maybe 5 minutes with me. Gave no advice on what to do next, just sent me on my way. Cortisone shot wore off, back to terrible pain. Went to another orthopedic doctor who said I had torn meniscus and needed surgery. I should have been told this 8 weeks ago and I would be on the mend. As it is, looks like I will have to cancel my much anticipated trip to Japan due to his uncaring attitude. Very disappointed. Very disappointed!

He is a doctor that takes time to explain what is wrong and how he will fix it. Then he makes sure you are doing what you are supposed to do in therapy.

Dr George is amazing. I can’t imagine getting older without him. I really appreciate his conservative approach to addressing each problem as it arises and not pushing for aggressive surgery or other invasive procedures.

Dr. George was unapologetically an hour late, according to the nurses outside of my door he wasn't even in the building. When he came into the room he did not ask me my past medical history, he did not offer any solutions to my current problems and didn't even ask me what my pain level was. This is the worst doctor visit I've ever had anywhere. I am no better off for having visited this facility and would not recommend.

Dr. John George has been mine and my son's orthopedic physician since 2005. We were introduced to him through the Benedictine Military School which my boys attended. He has performed a successful knee surgery on one of my sons and has always provided excellent care, including treating smaller ailments, of myself and my other son. His staff is responsive and just as cheery and upbeat as Dr. George. We are thrilled he is part of our healthcare team! Sandy Benson
